PREFACE. 



The following pages coiitain a selection from tlic Gene- 
alogical Notes made by my uncle, Nathaniel Goodwin, 
from time to time after his appointment to the office of 
Judge of Probate for the district of Hartford, in 1833, and 
prepared for publication by him during the last three or four 
of the latter years of his life. They were not designed by 
him to be complete genealogies even of the families which 
are treated of, but, as the title indicates, genealogical notes 
to assist others in tracing out their family histories. Mr. 
Goodwin had begun to print the work, makuig his final cor- 
rections as the proof-sheets were brought to him, and had 
proceeded as far as page 68, when the printing was suspend- 
ed, as he hojjcd temporarily, by a severe attack of disease, 
but as the event proved, finally, so far as he was concerned, 
by his death. At his request, made a few days before his 
death, and the desire of his execittors, the manuscripts 
were placed in the hands of Henry Barnard, LL. D., 
President of the Connecticut Historical Society, who had 
rendered my uncle similar aid in his Ibrmer publications, to 
see through the press ; l)ut the ]ircssure of his engagements 
obliged him, after the supervision of some fifty pages, to 
relinquish all further care of the work, beyond preparing a 



IV PREFACE. 

memoir of the author's life, and the immediate charge of 
the publication devolved on Charles J. Hoadly, Esq., late 
Librarian of Trinity College, and now State Librarian. 

It is difficult for one man to enter into the labors of 
another in matters of this kind, and to harmonize memo- 
randa differing sometimes in date and substance with 
regard to the same facts, particularly when the original 
sources whence the information was gathered are not indi- 
cated. Probably many of the blanks in the following 
genealogies would have been filled out, had Mr. Goodwin 
lived to finish the work himself, but no pains have been 
spared, to supply missing dates from the large mass of 
manuscript notes left by my uncle, and to add some from 
other reliable sources. 

The undersigned would, in conclusion, express his thanks, 
and the thanks, he doubts not, of many others interested 
in inquiries of this sort, to both of the gentlemen above 
named, for their cooperation in carrying this work througli 
the press, as another, although imperfect, contribution to 
this department of literatiire, from one who had devoted 
many years to its preparation.

OF 



NATHANIEL GOODWIN 



Nathaniel Goodwin, — whose accurate contributions to the 
genealogical literature of New England entitle hiin to an honor- 
able remembrance, not only among professed antiquarians, but by 
all who desire to see the restless habits of our people corrected by 
a stronger infusion of family and local attachments, which gene- 
alogical studies are calculated to foster — was born in Hartford, 
Connecticut, on the 5th of March, 1782 ; the youngest child of 
Nathaniel Goodwin, and Anna [Sheldon] Goodwin, the daughter 
of Deacon Isaac Sheldon. 

His ancestor on the father's side, was of the old New England 
Puritan stock — the names of the brothers William and Ozias 
Goodwin, being inscribed* on the stone monument erected to 
the memory of the early settlers of Hartford, in the ancient 
burying-ground of the First Church in Connecticut, where Mr. 
Thomas Hooker, "the light of the Western Churches," lirst 
ministei'ed ; Ozias Goodwin, and his elder brother William 
Goodwin, were of that " goodly company " of men, women, and 
children, who in June, 1635 or 1636, left Newtown, New Cam- 
bridge, and other settlements in the seaboard of Massachusetts, to 
plant a new colony on the ''delightful banks" of the Connecticut. 
Mr. William Goodwin was a man of mark in his day. He was 
admitted a freeman of Massachusetts, at Cambridge, in November, 
1632, and was a member of the first General Court in that

Vlll MEMOIR OF 

province at which delegates attended, held in May, 1634. Gov. 
Winthrop in his journal speaks of him as " a very reverend and 
godly man, being an elder in the congregation of Newtown" — in 
Cambridge. In 1636, he was commissioned with Mr. Samuel 
Stone, to negotiate for the grant of the land where Hartford now 
stands, from Sunckquasson, Sachem of Suckiauge, and grand pro- 
prietor of the lands of tliis region. He was one of the trustees 
of Gov. Hopkins' will — and in the dissensions about church 
membership, baptism, and discipline which convulsed the church 
of Hartford and Wethersfield, in 1659, he sided with the Rev. 
Mr. Russell, of the church at the latter place ; and with Gov. 
Webster, Mr. Whiting, Mr. Culick, Mr. Barnard and others, 
removed to Hadley, and founded there a church of which he be- 
came ruling elder, as he had previously been in the church at 
Hartford. He subsequently removed to Farmington, where he 
died in 1673, leaving one daughter who married John Ci'ow, of 
Hartiord. Mr. Goodwin's homestead, in the original distribution 
of the town of Hartford among the settlers, in 1639, embraced 
three acres — " abutting on the highway, lying at the North side 
of the Riveret, leading from the palisado to Sentinel Hill" — and 
included the site on which Wadsworth Atheneum, with the 
Library of tlie Connecticut Historical Society, now stands. 

Mr. Ozias Goodwin did not sympathize with his brother in his 
peculiar views as to church membership, and discipline, so far 
as to feel constrained to go out from his brethren in tlie church at 
Hartford, but continued to reside there, where he became the 
progenitor* of most of the name now in this section of the State. 
His home-lot was located on the west side of what is now Trum- 
bull street, and on both sides of Church street as since laid out. 

Nathaniel Goodwin, the father of the subject of this memoir, 
was a merchant in Hartford, and died in 1782, a few weeks before 
this son was born. The children were placed under the guardian- 
ship of Capt. Ebenezer Barnard, at that time a resident of Berlin, 
but Avho afterwards removed to flartford, where he died in 1827. 
The guardian appears to have aimed to secure a good education for 
his wards — both Nathaniel and his older brother James, having

Judge Goodwin to form a part of this volume, and are therefore, not so complete as he 
would have made them, had he lived.

been sent to tlie Academy at Plainfield, at lliat time second to 
none other in Connecticut. From a siiecimeii copy, executed l)y 
young Goodwin, and dated April 30, 1792, we sliould judge that the 
scholars of that school made one valuable acquisition — that of a 
handwriting, which has even now, the rare merit of legibility. 

After leaving school, Nathaniel served an apprenticeshij) in the 
art of printing; for two years Avith Mr. Obrient, in New Haven, 
and for three in the office of Charles R. and George Webster, in 
Albany. From a letter written by E. W. Skinner, Esq., Libra- 
rian of the New York State Library, dated Albany, April 17, 
1856, and who was an apprentice in the same office at tlu; time, it 
appears that Mr. Goodwin exhibited early in youth those traits of 
character and manners which distinguished him in after life. 
" During his residence in this city, he was diligent, exemplary and 
foithful in the discharge of all his duties ; kind an^ affectionate to 
his associates, and respectful and obedient to his instructors. His 
habits were good, and seemed based upon fixed moral principle. 
Practical good sense was predominant in his character, assisted 
and aided by study and observation. He was plain and unosten- 
tatious, and somewhat antiquated in manner and habit ; so much 
so, indeed, was this peculiarity observable, as to give to h.im the 
appearance of more mature age. Yet there -were times in which 
he would indulge in mirthful sports and playfulness of mind ; and 
particularly in manly adventure and ingenious strategy." 

On leaving the Messrs. Webster in 1803, they addressed to his 
guardian a kind letter, from which the following passages are taken. 

" Your ward Nathaniel Goodwin, had previously given us notice, 
that his apprenticeship would expire on the 5th day of the present 
month ; and that he had been requested by Mr. Barbei', to enter 
into his employment as foreman or superintendent of his j^i'inting 
office, at very handsome wages. To this we most clieerfully give 
our approbation, as we have no urgent business, and Mr. Barber 
is very much pressed in getting forward the journal of the legis- 
latui'e and other public printing. 

" We embrace this occasion. Sir, to acquaint you how jicrfectly 
satisfied we have been with the general good conduct and de- 
meanor of N. Goodwin while with us, and that in our opinion this 
conduct is indicative of intrinsic goodness of heart, and (nidences 
in a perspicuous manner how anxious he has been, by a suitable 
B 



X MEMOIROF 

and becoming behavior toward us, to render his amiable mother 
happy and give entire satisfaction to his respected guardian. 

" Permit us to add, (and we feel a pleasure in doing it,) that he 
leaves us a master of the art of printing — acquired by assiduous 
attention to business during his apprenticeship — a young man of 
handsome talent, pleasing manners, and correct morality. That 
his future life may be happy and prosperous is our most sincere 
prayer." 

For this gratifying exhibition of conduct and character, much is 
due to the watchful interest taken by his guardian, Capt. Barnard, 
in the moral and intellectual improvement of his ward. His 
letters addressed to him while at Plainfield and Albany, are full 
of urgent and judicious advice as to the employment of his time 
and the formation of good habits. 

" So important do I deem a right improvement of your time and 
talents, that you must accept from me a frequent repetition of ad- 
vice on these points. * * Let my years and experience, as 
well as duty and inclination advise you, not to be deterred by rain, 
nor snow, nor hail, nor wind, nor frown, nor flattery, nor false 
amusements, nor ideal pleasures, for a day, from laying a vii'tuous 
foundation in youth on a rock which can not be shaken." " Yours 
is the seed-time of life, if you sleep now, you can have no harvest." 
" Practice beneficence, resolution, perseverance, and self-denial. 
Fly from the vices you are inclined to, and hold fast to the virtues 
you would make your own." 

Mr. Goodwin did not pursue the business of printing, for which 
he had served an apprenticeship, but devoted himself to teaching 
and occasionally to commerce, in connection with his brother 
James. In 1814 he was appointed deputy collector of the revenue 
for the fourth collection district of Connecticut; and in 1833 
received a commission from the Surveyor General of Connecticut, 
as deputy surveyor for Hartford county. He had been for years 
a practical land surveyor, which he had mastered by himself; 
and had assisted Mr. Daniel St. John in making a survey and 
map of the city of Hartford, which was published in 1824. 

Mr. Goodwin held many important public trusts, which he dis- 
charged with exemplary fidelity and to the universal acceptance 
of his fellow-citizens. He was elected Treasurer of the City of 
Hartford, in March, 1818, and annually thereafter for thirty-five

years, (ill Aj)!*!!, l<S5o, when ho declitied a rc-olcction. In 1^35 
he WHS elected Town Treasurer, and lield tlie ollice fill Ik; declined 
are-nomination in 1854; and in 1833 he was appointed County 
Treasurer, and held the office till 1854, when he resigned the 
place, and declined all further ap})ointnients. From 1832 to 1833, 
he held the otlice of Judge of Probate for the probate district o\' 
Hartford, and for several years afterwards served as cderk ; ami in 
addition to the regular duties of the ofHce, he performed a great 
public service in arranging, and classifying the papers of the office, 
in making out full alphabetical indexes, and in copying out [)ar- 
tially obliterated i)ages, and other ways contributing to the pres- 
ervation and convenient consultation of these important documents. 
In the mean time and from a very early period, lie had been em- 
ployed as administrator in settling intestate estates, until probably 
no individual in the community had had so much to do with the 
business of the prol)atc office, and with the city, town and county 
records. He was thus prepared for the prosecution of genealogi- 
cal inquiries, and it is to be regretted that he did not at an earlier 
day, determine on preparing his memoranda of individual and 
family histories for publication. 

In 1845 he published in pamphlet form his first contribution to 
genealogical literature, under the title of the "Descendants of 
Thomas Olcott, one of the first settlers of Hartford" Avhich he 
dedicated to the Connecticut Historical Society. In 1849, he pub- 
lished "77ie Foote Family: or the Descendants of Nathaniel 
Foote, one of the first settlers of Wethersfield." And from the 
date of the last publication projected the plan of a series of works 
of a similar character, in connection with a histoiy of the towns of 
Hartford, Wethersfield, and Windsor, in the preparation of which 
the author of this memoir was to be associated, as he had pre- 
viously been in preparing the introduction and notes to the al)ove 
mentioned genealogies. Warned by some premonitory symptoms 
of a serious malady, which might terminate his labors before the 
history could be" prepared, he determined on making a selection 
from his memoranda, and publishing them under the title of 
" Genealogical Notes, or Contributions to the Family His- 
tory of some of the First Settlers of Connecticict and Massachu- 
setts." He accordingly selected enough as he thought to make a 
volume of four or five hundred pages, and after a thorough revis-

ion commenced their publication, but had not proceeded far when 
he was obliged to suspend his labors, by an attack of sickness from 
which he never recovered. 

After lingering for many months in his sick-room, with periods 
of great suffering, which he bore with exemplary patience, and 
with intervals too of assured hope that he might again resume 
his favorite studies, he died on the 29th of May, 1855, in the 74th 
year of his age. His funeral was attended by a large concourse 
of his fellow citizens, Avho entertained for him the highest respect 
for the exemj)lary diligence and fidelity with which he had dis- 
charged important public trusts, and for his industrious, useful and 
upright life. 

In an article published in the Connecticut Courant on the day 
following his funeral, Mrs. Sigourney presents the following dis- 
criminating estimate of the character of Mr. Goodwin : 

" All his services for the public were discharged with incorrupt- 
ible fidelity, and a diligence and punctuahty seldom equalled. 
Neither is it slight jjraise that in the iutexx'ourse growing out of 
them, with people of varying rank and occupation, he should have 
been enabled to ever preserve his self-command, and steadfastly to 
regard the rights of the humblest, and to treat with respect the 
opinions of those from whom he differed. 

" Antiquarian tastes had the predominance in his mind, and the 
genealogical works he has been induced to give to the press, are 
models of persevering research and accurate arrangement. Even 
his chirography might seem correctly to symbolize his character — 
])lain, neat, upright, perfect in punctuation, rejecting all factitious 
flourish, and as legible as the clearest typography. 

" In his household, as well as in the community, his judgment 
was revered, and the authority of his example invariably upheld 
useful employment, and solid comfort, as opposed to vain ostenta- 
tion or the sway of fickle fashion. His whole life was marked by 
that avoidance of display ; that freedom from the pride of wealth ; 
tliat regard for honest industry, which ought to take high rank 
among the virtues of a republic, interwoven as they are with its 
stability and health. He was conspicuous for " a sound mind in a 
sound body ; " for the love of order and the spirit of peace. 

" Venerable neighbor and friend, we lay thee in thy grave at this 
last vernal sunset, not without sorrow. Thou wert one of the few 



NATHANIEL GOODWIN. XUl 

representatives of a race rapidly vauisliiiig away, who illustrated 
the virtues and the inanuers of the olden time: Peaee to thy 
stainless memory. We think of thee now, as with that Saviour, to 
whom in truth and humility thou didst eommit thine everlasting 
trust." 

Mr. Goodwin was one of the original incorporators of the Con- 
necticut Historical Society, although he seldom met with its mem- 
bers. He was at tluj time of his death a Vice-President of the 
New England Historic-Genealogical Society — whose appreciation 
of the deceased was expressed in the following preamble and 
resolutions. 

"At a meeting of the New England Historic- Genealogical Soci- 
ety, held August 1st, 1855, the following preamble and resolutions 
were unanimously adopted. 
"Whereas we have heard of the decease of Hon. Nathaniel 

Goodwin, of Hartford, Conn., one of the Vice-Presidents of the 

Society. Therefore, 

^^ Resolved, That we deeply regret the loss the Society has sus- 
tained in the death of a most useful, active and valuable member, 
and we heartily sympathise with the family and relatives in their 
severe affliction. 

'■'■Resolved, That the Corresponding Secretary request the 
family to furnish for the use of the Society, or for publication in 
the Genealogical Register, the leading facts and incidents of his 
life. 

'■'■Resolved, That the Secretary be requested to forward a copy 
of these proceedings to the iiunily of the departed. 

" CHARLES MAYO, 

^'Recording Secretary." 

Mr. Goodwin, from his habits of patient and ])ersevering indus- 
try, from his official familiarity with early records, and from his 
grateful admiration of the cliaracter and services of the early 
settlers of Connecticut, was admirably fitted for his work. In the 
introduction to his genealogy of the " Foote Family," he thus 
expresses himself as to the rewards and ultimate aims of his 
labors. 

" To the author, the labor of looking thi'ough the dusty and fast 



XIV MEMOIR OF NATHANIEL GOODWIN. 

perishing records of the past, has carried along with it, its own 
sweet reward. Every stej) in his investigations, has been on 
some fragment of reverend history which has exalted his admira- 
tion of the sufferings and services,^ — of the far-sighted policy, the 
rehgious devotion and public spirit of the founders of our own 
little State: and he will feel amply honored, if his labors shall 
prove in any measure successful in chiseling deeper the inscriptions 
on their tombstones — in renewing the memory of their virtues 
from oblivion, and in brightening the links which connect the pres- 
ent generation with the first generation of New England, and 
thereby infusing a larger spirit of patriotism into the life of to-day. 
"Our researches into the past will fail of their true import, 
unless the living are instructed by its experience, warned by its 
trials, and quickened by its example."

*Rev. Adam Blakeman left a Will, dated 1st mo: 16, 1665, [March 16, 1665.] 

The following extract from that instrument contains an important historical reference to 
the form of Church Discipline approved by the Reverend Elders and brethren of the Colony 
of Connecticut, and of the Bay in 1649, and set forth by Rev. Thomas Hooker, first minister 
of Hartford, in his elaborate work entitled " The Survey of Church Discipline.'' 

" Item. Because many of God's servants have been falsely accused concerning the judg- 
ment of the kinglike power of Christ ; though I have cause to bewail my great ignorance 
and weakness in acting, yet I do and hope I shall, through t\w strength of Christ, to my 
dying day, adhere to that form of Church Discipline agreed on by the Rev. Elders and 
brethren in the year 49, now in print. And to the truth of God concerning that point, left 
on record by that famous aud Rev. servant of God, of blessed memory, Mr. Thomas Hooker, 
in his elaborate work called T/ie Siiri-e?/ of Church Diaripliire,' to which most in all the 
churches of Christ then gathered in this colony gave their consent, as appears in tlie Kev. 
author's epistle, so at Milford, New Haven, Guilford, and those in the Bay, who could be 
come at in that stress of time. And, I being one who, in the name of our church, sub- 
scribed that copy, ceuld never, (through the grace of Christ.) see cause to receive any other 
judgment nor fall from those principles so soundly backed with Scripture, and arguments 
which none yet could overturn." 

t Mrs. Blakeman's Will, which will be found recorded on Fairtieia Probate Records, is 
dated September 20, 1671. Her inventory bears date January 2.3, 1673-4.

DESCENDANTS IN THE LINE OF JOHN BLAKEMAN, SON 

OF REV. ADAM BLAKEMAN. 

SECOND GENERATION. 

I. 

John Blakeman, of Stratford, Conn., was married to Dorathy 
Smith, daughter of Rev. Henry Smith, the first ordained minister 
of Wethersfield, Conn., about 1653. [After his death, she was 
married, 1. To Francis Hall, of Stratford, October 31, 1665. She 



Atwater, make his son Joshua a scholar, and fit him for that work, I give unto him all my 
Latin Books ; but if not, they shall be put into my estate and disposed of as my -wife and 
my overseers shall think fit." [After the date of his father's Will the Rev. Benjamin 
Blakeman was educated for the ministry, at Harvard College, and subsequently became a 
preacher of the Gospel.] 

* The following statement of Rev. John Higginson, which I find recorded on the Land 
Records of the town of Stratford, informs vis "that ' the Meeting House at Hartford, (I sup- 
pose the reader may infer the first Meeting House,) 7vas not buylded in the beginning of the 
year 1638." " Being desired to express what I remember concerning the trans;.ctions between 
the English at Connecticut and the Indians along the coast from Quilipoke to the Manatees 
about the land, the substance I can say is briefly this : That in the beginning of the year 
1638, the last week of March, Mr. Hopkins and Mr. Goodwin being employed to treat with 
Indians and make sure of that whole tract of land in order to prevent the Dutch, and to 
accommodate the English who might after come to inhabit here, I was sent with them as an 
interpreter, (for want of a better.) We having an Indian with us for a guide, acquainted the 
Indians as we passed, with our purpose, and went as far as about Narwokc before we stayed ; 
coming tither on the sixth day we gave notice to the Sachem and the Indians to meet there 
on the second day that we might treat with them all-together about the business ; accord- 
ingly on the .second day there was a full meeting, (as themselves said) of all the Sachems, 
old men and Captaynes from about Milford to Hudson's River : after they had understood 
the cause of our coming and had consulted with us and amongst themselves, and that in as 
solemn a manner as Indians use to do in such cases, they did with an unanimous consent 
express their desire of the English friendship, their willingness the English should come to 
dwell amongst them and proofs that they did give and surrender up all their land to the 
English S.achems at Connecticut, and hereupon presented us with two parcels of wampum, 
the lesser they would give us for our message, the greater they would send us a present to 
the Sachems at (Connecticut, it being not long .after the Indian conquest, and the fear of the 
English being then upon them ; it loeing moved amongst them which of them would go up 
with us to signify this agreement and to present their wampum to the Sachems at Connec- 
ticut, at last, Wauwhan and Wouwequsrkpeanast offered themselves and were much ap- 
plauded by the rest for it ; accordingly these two Indians went up with us to Hartford ; not 
long after" there was a committee in Mr. Hooker's barn, the meeting house then not huylded, 
where tliey two did appear and presented their wampum, and I remember I went out and 
attended the business no farther ; so that wliat was further done or ^hat writings there 
were about the business I cannot now say, but I suppose if search be made, somctliing of 
the business may be found in the (contents, minutes or) papers of the Court ; and 1 suppo.se 
if Mr. Goodwin be enquired of, he can say the same for substance as I have, and William 
■Cornwall at Saybrook, who was there. Jlr. Nicholas Knell testifies the same with Mr. Hig- 
ginson as respecting the Indians giving the land to the English, and mentions the pay- 
ment of money to the Indians as a gratuity for the gift. Taken this 3d April, '71.

1661. [January 19, 16G1.] Exhibited into Court, November 26, 1662. 

t The following extract from the Will of the Rev. Adam Blakeman, should be read in 
connection with the annexed order of the Particular Court, held Oct. 10, 1665, having 
reference to the ■' unsuccessful suit " of one John Thomas, for the hand of the Widow 
Blakeman, whose many virtues caused her to be much sought after, she having been 
married three times after the death of her first husband. 

"I give to my daughter Blakeman, if she marry not John Thomas, and .shall take 
her friends' consent in the matter, or continue a widow, five pounds." [Daughter Widow 
Blakeman here referred to, was Dorathy Blakeman, widow of John Blakeman, (son of Rev. 
Adam Blakeman,) who died in 1662. She was daughter of Rev. Henry Smith, the first 
ordained minister of Wethersfield, Conn.] 

At a particular Court held at Hartfunt, October 10, 1665. " The Magistrates do order, 
that in case John Thomas and the Widow Blakeman do not issue their difference by refer- 
ence now concluded on, that the said Thomas shall make good his claim to that woman 
at the next Court held at Fairfield, otherwise, the widow shall have liburty to marry." 

X Left a Will, which was probated November 6, 1706, in which he devises his estate? to his 
only son Abraham ; and in case of his death, to John Blakeman, son of his brother 
Ebenezer.

Leonard Chester, Esq., died December 11, 1648, aged 39. f 

* In Genealogical Notes relating to the Chester family, shown me by George Brinley, Jun., 
Esq., of this city, is the following: "Leonard Chester came from England. He married 
Mary Wade, widow, daughter of Mr. Nicholas Sharpe." 

t Leonard Chester was son of John Chester, of the parish of Blaby, in the county of 
Leicester, England, and of Dorathy, his wife, daughter of Thomas Hooker, of England, and 
sister of IJev. Thomas Hooker, one of the first settlers, and the first minister of Hartford. 
Conn., as I was informed by Sylvester Judd, Esq., of Northampton, Mass., about twelve 
years ago, and who told me this infoi-mation was communicated to him several years previ- 
ous, by a member of the family of Stephen Chester, Esq., of Wethersfield. 

The folloiving is a Copy of the last Will and Testament of Leonard Chester. — " Memor. 
Whereas I have some years since drawn up the frame of my thoughts and desires into a 
writing, and committed it to the keeping of my uncle Thomas Hooker, now deceased ; which 
writing, for the present, I cannot well come at : and further, because in the writing, I have 
not, so far as I remember, made any provision for my younger children, which have been 
born since : I do therefore hereby declare, that whatever provision is therein made for my 
younger children that were then born, the same provision I do appoint to be made for my 
younger children born since, so that they may all have their portions alike, equal one to 
another, except my eldest son to whom I have bequeathed and do still bequeath a double 
portion. And whereas in that my will, I have entreated Mr. .7. Webster* and my cousin 
Newtonf to be my Executors, I do hereby make known that my desire is to ease them of the 
trouble, and do constitute and appoint my loving wife to be my sole and alone Executrix. 
And lastly, because I have taken no order in that writing for the dispose of what estate I have 
remaining still in Old England, I do therefore hereby bequeath all that estate, whether in 
annuity, goods or otherwise, which either is or shall be of right appertaining unto me or my 
heirs ; and in particular, one annuity of thirty quarters of barley issuing out of the estate 
of Nicholas Sharpe, deceased, and by his will bequeathed unto me and my heirs, for the 
selling whereof, I have sent over a letter of attorney to my father Wade : all this with 
whatever else will be coming to me out of Old England, I do give to my wife during her life, 
with all the profits that shall accrue therefrom ; and after her decease, I do give and 
bequeath it to my children, viz. : to my eldest son, a double portion, — and to the rest, to 
every one an equal portion. That this is my full mind and final resolution and will, I do 
hereby, in testimony hereof, set my hand and seal, this 2d day of August, 1648.

My desire is to add something further to my within mentioned will, viz. : 

1. In case my annuity in Old England shall not be sold, and so shall fall by law, upon my 
eldest son, that then whatever I have given to my eldest son by my will, riz. : that double 
portion of goods, shall be translated from him to my other children, to mend their portions. 

2. In case any of my children shall prove uudutiful and stubborn to their mother, that it 
shall be in the power of their mother to take away the one half of that jiortion I have 
bequeathed to that child, and to give it to such of the rest as shaU be more dutiful to her. 

These things, though in a rude and indigested manner, I desii-e for the present thus to set 
do^vn, — intending, if God spare my life, to reduce all into one entire writing. This 2d of 
Aug: 1648. Leonard Chester.

Clarke, born July 14,1818. Married Harriet Champion, of Michi-

* Great integrity, cheerfulness, frankness, sincerity, a strong and instinctive sense of 
justice, truthfulness that recoiled from a shadow of deception, and a deej) reverence for 
God and sacred things, were the marked characteristics of her life. 

t On tlie resignation of the first Principal of the American Asylum at Ilartford for the 
Education and Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb, (Rev. Thomas H. Gallaudet,) about 
twenty-three years since, Mr. Weld was appointed his successor ; and for this long period he 
discharged the duties of the office with dignity and ability. 

In all his arrangements and matters of business, he was remarkably punctual and syste- 
matic ; careful to do everything in proper time and in due order. In his intercourse with his 
pupils, his chief aim and most earnest endeavour was to do them good, not merely by culti- 
vating their intellects, but by improving their characters ; by imbuing their minds with 
worthy sentiments and correct views. While solicitous to prepare them for usefulness and 
happiness in this present life, he was still more anxious to secure for them a blessed inherit- 
ance in the life to come. We doubt not, that in the great day of final revision, he will rejoice 
in the results of his labors and prayers. [Rfv. Wil!ia7?i W. Turner.]

t The following honorable mention of this gentleman is taken from an Historical Address 
delivered before the citizens of Dedham, Mass., September 21, 1836, by Samuel F. Haven, 
Esq. " Then follows the third remarkable period in the history of American resistance to 
arbitary power. The charter was dissolved in 1686, and soon after Sir Edmund Andros was 
appointed Governor. His administration was grievous oppression. In 1689, an indirect 
rumor having arrived, by the way of Virginia, of the landing of the Prince of Orange in Eng-

accomplishing a revolution of their own. On the morning of the 18th of April, the town of 
Boston was in ai'ms. The Governor and Council were seizeil and confined, and the old magis- 
trates reinstated. The country people came into town in such rage and heat as made all 
tremble to think wliat would follow. Nothing would satisfy them but that the Governor 
must be bound in chains or cords and put in a more secure place, and for their quie the was 
guarded by them to the Fort. Whose hand was on the collar of that prisoner, leading him 
through the excited crowd, at once securing him from escape and guarding him from out- 
rage? It was the hand of DANIEL FISHER, of Dedham ; aye ' a second Daniel come to 
.lUDGMENT, ' a son of the former, and heir of his energetic ardor in the cause of freedom."' 
The expulsion of His Excellency Gov. Andros from New England, so graphically described 
V>y Mr. Haven, was of a very different character from his reception into Boston, as noted by 
.Judge Se'vielX in his " Interleaved Almanaclc."' "On December 19, 1686. Arrived at Nan- 
taskit, his Excellency Sir Edmund Andross, His Majesties General! Governour, of his Terri- 
tory and Dominion in America. He landed at Boston, on the Monday following, and was 
received w^li general Acclamation of Joy.'' 

* He was a child when his father brought him to Dedham, in 1635, and he is described as 
one of an excellent spirit, peaceable, generous, charitable, and a promoter of the true inter- 
ests of the church and town. [Farmar.]

* On coming into New-England, the first settlers of Wether.sfield, (among whom were 
William Goodrich and his brother John Goodrich,) located themselves at Watertown, Mass., 
with a view of making that place their permanent residence. In a " Record of the Grants 
and the Possessions of the Lands" in that town we find recorded to William Goodrich, six 
several tracts of Land, viz: 

'• 1. An homstall of 5 acres. 

2. Three acres of remote meadow. 

3. Ten acres and half of upland beyond the further plain. 

4. Twenty -five acres of upland in the fourth diHsion. 

5. Three acres of plow-land on the further plain. 

6. One acre of meadow at Beaver Brook."' 

In or about the year 1636, the \\'atertown Company, or the largest portion of them, 
including the brothers Goodrich, removed from Watertown to Wethersfield, Conn, and 
then; planted themselves anew, and in the distribution of the town among the settlers 
William Goodrich had assigned to liim sever.-il lots. 

It is not known from what part of Jingland the Goodrich brothers emigrated. Knquirers 
on this point may derive aid from the following facts, viz :

* Mr. ingcrsoll was graduated at Vale CoUece in 1742 ; settled at New Haven as a lawyers 
and was agent of the colony in England, in 1767; but beinu; appointed ilistributor of stamps 
in Oonuecticut, under the stampact, he lost bis popularity. The people of New Haven coin- 
))elled hini to resig-n, August 24, 17(55. Not deeming this resignation expUcit, a large eom- 
pany from the eastern part of Connecticut set out on a journey to New Haven. They met 
Mr. IngersoU at Wethersfield, when they compelled him to resign, and cry out three times, 
Liberty and Property. The next day 500 men escorted him to Hartford. On beijig ap- 
pointed admiralty judge for the middle district, about the year 1770, be removed to Phila- 
delphia ; but in consequence of the Revolution, be returned to New Haven, where he died. 
The following account of this affair i.s taken from the Connecticut Courant, of September 
23, 1765, published at Hartford. 

" Last Wednesday afternoon a large company of able bodied men came to town, (on horse- 
back,) from the eastern part of this government, and informed those who were wiUiug to 
join them, that they were on their way to New ilaven to demand the stiunp officer of the 
colony to x-esign his oflice ; that a number of their associat<!s had gone on the lower roads, 
and that they had all agreed to rendevous at Branford the ne.xt day, (Thursday,) and that 
they should tany in town that night : thc.y then dispersed to different parts of the town for 
lod.ging. In the evening, advice was received that 5Ir. IngersoU was on the road to this 
place, — that he would be in town next day, and that he intended to apply to the assembly 
for their protection ; and it being conjcctui'ed that be might come to town in the night, to 
shun the mob, (who he heai\i were on tiicir way to pay him a visit,) it was agreed tliat » 
watch should patrol the streets all night, to prevent bis coming in unnoticed, but they 
made no discoveries. On Thursday morning, the whole body (including a considerable 
number from this town,) set off on the intended expedition, and in about an hour, met Mr. 
IngersoU at the lower end of Wethersfield. and lot him know their business. He at first 
refused to comply ; but it v.-ah insisted upon that ho should resign his office of stamp mas- 
ter, so disagreeable to his countrymen. After many proposals, he dcUvered the resignation 
mentioned below, which he read himself iu the hearing of the whole company. He was 
then desired to pronounce the words. Liberty and Property, three times, which he having 
done, the whole body gave three cheers. Mr. In,gersoll then went to a tavern, and dined 
with several of the company. After dinner, the company told Mr. IngersoU, as he was 
bound to Hartford, they would escort him thei-o, which they did to the number of five hun- 
dred persons, on horseback. After they arrived in town, Mr. IngersoU again read his resig- 
nation in public, when three huzzas were given, and th<^ whole company immediately dis- 
persed, without making the least disturbance. 

" The following is a copy of Mr. IngersoUs resignation : 

'• Wethersfield, September 19, 1765. 
• 1 do hereby promise that I never will receive any stampt papers which may arrive from

* From New-York Express, of Monday, June 5, 1854. 

The late Mrs. Emily Judson, (whose death, at Hamilton, iu this State, was announced by 
telegraph, yesterday.) was about 40 years of age. Her maiden name was Emily Chubbuck. 
Her native place was Eatoij, iu Madison county, New York. She first became known to 
the public as a writer for periodicals, and under the assumed name of " Fanny Forester,"' she 
acquired great reputation as a writer of refined taste. Her success as a writer induced 
Miss Chubbuck to appear, under her literary cognomen of " Fanny Forester," as the 
author of " Alderbrook,-' and other volumes, in the school of light literature, all inculcating 
moral lessons, and tending to increase her reputation as a female writer of great delicacy 
and elegance of style. Iu June, 1846, Miss Chubbuck astonished her many admirers by an 
entire change in her career and pursviits, in announcing her resolution to devote herself to 
a missionary life, and of course leaving her native country with but doubtful prospects of 
a future return to her relatives and friends. At that time she became the third wife of 
the Kev. Adoniram Judson, D. D., Baptist missionary to liurniah, iu Asia, and on the 11th 
of July she embarked with her husband and other missionaries, in the ship Fanueil Hall, 
from Boston for India. The missionary labors of l)r. Judson in Burmah, or eastern India, 
extended over a period of about thirty-nine years, terminating with his death in September. 
1850. While in Burmah his views respecting baptism underwent a change, in consequence 
of which he left the Congregationalists in 1814, and joined the Baptist church. Soon after 
the death of her husband, BIrs. Judson returned to the United States, and for the last two 
years had been in somewhat feeble health.

Marsh, of Hadley, Mass., December 1, 1732. 

John Kent, Esq., died June 24, 1737, aged 49. 

* John Kent (who was married May 9, 1686,) was probably born about 1660 or 1665. He 
died in 1721. Mr. .ludd, in his letter of February 14, 1853, says, — " In the settlement of the 
estate of John Kent, a reference is made to the will of John. Kent, liis father. We may 
therefore assume that his father's name was Jo/in, but his place of residence is not given." 

N. B. I think Mr. Judd is mistaken in his above statement, for being at Northampton 
August 26, 1853, 1 examined the proceedings in the county clerk's office on the settlement 
of the estate of John Kent, (Book 4, page 101,) in wliich, among an account of debts due 
from the estate of John Kent, late of Suffield, decea.sed, I found the following entry, (it being 
no dou'fc, the same entry on which Mr. Judd, from hasty inspection, founded his ojiinion.) 
viz. ; "Due to John Kent, for a yoke of oxen and a horse given to him in his grandfather's 
will, to which will, his father, John Kent, deceased, was executor."' This entry is, I t/ihik-, 
an index to the name of the father of John Kent, whose estate is here tinder settlement.

was endued by the great author of all good gifts, with a sprightly genius, a quickness of 
invention and readiness of thought ; was of a cheerful, sociable, compassionate, hospitable 
disposition, — furnished with a rich treasure of knowledge, both huuiau and divine, which 
being sanctified by divine grace, rendered liim very useful in life. As a Christian, he ex- 
celled in the cardinal grace of Iiumility : was ever inclined to think low of his attainments 
and performances : he was enriched with many ministerial gifts and (jualifications ; with 
an uncommon faculty to prevent and heal difficulties ; was much improved and greatly 
serviceable in councils : but "tis well known, to all his judicious acquaintance, that he ex- 
celled more especially as to pulpit talents His composition was truly good, — his matter 
sound and iustructiTo,— his manner of address, solemn and serious : — he delivered with a 
pathos becoming the inijiortance of the subject; — he was a faithful, painful, profitable, 
searching preacher, and as such was exceeded by but few; and to human appearance, it 
pleased Ood to improve him as an instrument of gathering in many lost souls to Christ. 
He quitted mortality with a Christian fortitude and serenity, and with good reason we con- 
clude he is gone to receive the rewards of a faithful servant of Christ, lie left a second wife 
a disconsolate widow, and seven children. His bereaved widow is sister to the late Hon.

Chickering, daughter of Francis 
Chickering, of Dedham, JIarch 22, 
1647, died November 27, 1675. , 



* See Genealogical Register, April, 1852. 

t Michael Metcalf, the emigrant ancestor of this fiimily, was born in Tatterford, county 
of Norfolk, Englaud, 1.586. His wife Sarah was born in the adjoining town of Wearhani, 
June 17, 1.593, where they were married, October 13, 1616. Their seven oldest children 
were born in Sf. Benedict's, Norwich, and four, afterwards, at St. Edmondsbui-y. •' I was 
persecuted,"' ho writes, " in the land of my father's sepulchres, for not bowing at the 
name of .lesus, and observing other ceremonies in religion, forced upon me, at the instance 
of Bishop Wren, of Norwich, and his chancellor Dr. Corbet, whose violent measures troubled 
me in the Bishop's Court, and returned me into the High Comuiissiohers' Court. Suffering 
many times for the cause of religion, I was forced, for the sake of the liberty of my con- 
science, to flee from my wife and children, to go into New-England : taking ship lor the 
voyage at Loudon, the 17th of Sep^ 1636 ; being by tempests tossed up and down the seas 
till the Christmas following, then veering about to Plymouth in Old England, in which 
time I met with many sore afflictions. 

■' Leaving the ship, I went down to Yarmouth, in Norfolk county, whence I shipped 
myself and family, to come to New-England; sailed 15th April, 1637, and arrived three 
days before midsummer, with my wife, nine children and a servant." The name of this 
servant appears to have been Thomas Comherbach, aged 16. [Manuscript of Hon. James 
Savage.] 

The above extracts we take from a copy of his letter, written in Plymouth, Eng., Jan. 13, 
1636, on his voyage hither ; directed, " To all the true professors of Christ's Gospel within 
the city of Norwich." In the postscript, lie remarks, " my enemies conspired against me 
to take my life, and, sometimes, to avoid their hands, my wife did hide me in the roof of 
the house, covering me over with straw." 

History informs us, that one of the charges brought against Bishop Wren, by a Commit- 
tee of Parliament, was, that during the term of two years and four months, while he held 
tiie See of Norwich, " 3000 of his Majesty's subjects, many of whom use trades, .spinning, 
weaving, knitting, making cloth, stutT, stockings, and other manufactures of wool, some 
of them setting a hundred poor people at work," •' transported themselves into Holland,'' 
and "other parts beyond the seas" in consequence of his " sviperstition and tyranny." 
[See appendi.x to Dr. Iiamson's Hist. Discourses.] 

Mic'nael iletcalf was admitted a townsman at Dedham, July 14, 1637 ; joined the churcli 
in 1639, and was selectman in 1641. His name stands first on the Committee chosen to 
'■ contrive the fabricke of a meeting house.''

lie was a gnmdson of tlie elder I'n^^ident Edwanls, and the oldest of liis descendants at

whieli he was born. In youth he gave his heart to ,lesus, and through his long and active 
life, love to (Jod and men, governed his actions. Sound in judgment, prompt and energetic 
in action, kind and generous in his feelings, and influenced by Christian princij)le, in his 
dealings with his fellows, he naturally seeui'ed the confidence, and received the honors of 
his fellow-(ritizens, in those days, when to hold an office was an honor. He often repre- 
sented his native town in tlic j.ctiisl,it m-i-, was a member of the Constitutional Convention

and his providence, — and especially as they joined in those precious family devotions, when 
he comraenided to his Father in heaven, with such touching simplicity and earnestness of 
faith, not only his own loved ones, but themselves and theirs, — the conviction came over 
them that he, while enjoying in rare abundance the blessings of this life, was truly seeking 
a better country, even an heavenly. 

'• Well does the writer remember with what power, in his youth, a day's sojourn under the 
roof of this .aged servant of Christ testified to the power of religion, and commended it to 
his acceptance. Would that such a savor of Christ was found in every Christian life. 

" His end, for which he had long waited in calm and joyful hope, was peaceful and fitting. 
After leading in family devotions and preparing his house for night, as usual, he was sud- 
denly called away, and departed in his ordinary attire to meet the God with whom he had 
so long walked on earth. Precious is the life and precious the death, of those who love the 
Lord.'' [Newspaper.] 



EGBERT SEDGWICK. 



FIRST GENERATION. 



General ROBERT SEDGWICK, of Charlestown, Mass., 
and one of the first or early settlers of that town, was married in 

England, to . [Alter his death, she was married to Rev. 

Thomas Allen, Pastor of the Congregational Church in Norwich, 
England, formerly teacher of the Church in Charlestown from 
about 1639, to 1651, when he returned to England, by whom she 
had no children. She was his second wife. He died September 
21, 1673. aged 65.*] 

Gen. Robert Sedgwick died at Jamaica, "W. I., May 24, 1656.t 

* History of Charlestown, by Richard Frothingham, jun., Esq. 

t Robert Sedgwick was one of tlio most distinguished men of his time. The family is 
supposed to have sprung from the northern counties of England. Johnson furnishes the 
earliest notice of Mr. Sedgwick, writing tliat he " was nursed up in Loudon's artillery gar- 
den," and "was stout and active in all feats of war." He was admitted an inhabitant of 
this town June 3, 1636 ; a freeman in 1637, and tliis year chosen representative, and several 
times afterwards. He was also selectman, and often engaged in town bu.siness. He was 
probably, a merchant, and on occasion of selHng his goods too high, was admoni.shed, (1639,) 
by the Court, to take heed of oppression. lie was the captain (1636) of the first " trained 
band" of this town, the first major (1644) of the Middlesex regiment, and elected major 
general May 26, 1652. In 1641, 1645, and 1648, he commanded the Ancient and Honorable 
Artillery Company, and in 1C41, tlie (Castle. In 1645, he had a commission to take care of 
the fortifications of the town, and to keep it and the hai-bor " trom all hostile and mutinous 
attempts or insurrections." He was, among other duties, directed to have always in readi- 
ness "a barrel of powder for every six pieces of ordnance, with twelve shot and five pound 
of match, if any ships in tlie harbor shall quarrel and .shoot one another ; whereby the 
l)eople, or houses may be endangered." 

Previous to July 1, 1654, General Sedgwick had visited England, and engaged in the ser- 
vice of Cromwell, as conunander of a contemplated erpedition against the Dutch at New 
York. In a letter to the Protector, of this date, Sedgwick informed him of his arrival here, 
and of his proceedings ; namely, that in fourteen days he had victualled his ships, and in 
six more was ready with nine hundred foot and a company of horse, to act against the 
enemy, when, June 1, news of peace arrived; and that commissioners, at a meeting in 
Charlestown, June 17, had determined to employ the force against the French forts in 
Nova Scotia. Sedg^Nick sailed, July 4, 1654, from Boston, with a fleet, consisting of the 
Augustine, Church, Hope, and a Ketch ; arrived at St. John's, a strong fort, on the 14th ; 
captured it on the l7th, then took Port Royal and another French fort, and sailed for Pis- 
cataqua. 

Though the General Court questioned General Sedgwick's authority for doing this, yet 
such vigorous action was so acceptable to Cromwell, th.'it the next year he was appointed to 
an important service in the West Indies. Jamaica had been captured; and General Sedg- 
wick was sent, with a fleet under his orders, with reinforcements for the array under General 
Vcnables. He .sailed from Plymoutli July 11, 1655 ; and arrived at Barbadoes, August 27, 
when he learned that Venables had UK^t with a repulse, losing four hundred men. A few 
extracts from Sedgwick's letters show the .state of his feelings. Writing to Cromwell, Sej)- 
tcmber 1, 1655, he says : — 

" I must confess, I cannot bring my own spirit to stand and consider what I may under- 
stand of the mind and will of God, and what he speak.s in so loud a voice as tliis. 1 must 
conclude this, that God is righteous in his proceedings, to curb and bring low the pride of 
the sons of men.'' 

The same letter concludes in the following manner ; — 

" I am resolved to attend my business iirith as much wisdom and vigor as God shall assist 
me with, I thank God, my heart in some measure beareth me witness, that it is the glory

of God, that I intended in this employment, and I hope he will yet own us. Our condition^ 
I am confident, is often rememhered by you in your approaches to Heaven, and I hope wil' 
yet be. Religion and God was pretended, and I question not intended, and I know must 
now be attended, if we prosper. Let your hjglmess be pleased to pardon my boldness and 
prolixity. I thank God my prayers are for you, and that the God of wisdom and grace may 
yet own you in your so many weighty affairs, that you may be a blessing to your generation, 
and serviceable to Christ, and to his people. 

" Sir, I am ^villing to be, and wish I were, 

" Your Lordship's humble Servant, 

"Robert Sedgwick." 

General Sedgwick's letters, [in Thurloe's State Papers,] long, able and interesting, present 
a vivid view of the difficulties he had to encounter. " The truth is " ho writes the Protec- 
tor, November 5, 1655, •' God is angry, and tlie plague is begun, and we liave none to stand 
in the gap." " Sir, you cannot conceive us so sad as we are, broken and scattered, God 
rending us in twain, a senseless hearted people, not affected with his dealings towards us." 
There was the evil of a divided command. A council for managing tlie affairs of the island 
was formed, of which Sedgwick, appointed commissioner by Cromwell, was one, and Gen- 
eral Fortesque was president. The latter soon fell a victim to the climate. At this time 
General Sedgwick made two requests to the Pi-otector : — 

" One is, if God spare me life, tliat your liighness would be pleased to permit me to come 
to England. But I am not very solicitous in that, sometimes thinking that another place 
will be my portion, before I may hear again from your highness. 

" The other petition is : I left behind me a dear and religious wife, who through grace 
hath much of tlie fear and knowledge of God in her. I have also five childi'en, to me dear 
and precious. I would only by this, that your liighness would cast one thought towards 
them ; that whatever hazard or hardship I may go throvigh, yet my relations may not be 
forgotten. I only expect, what your highness was pleased to promise me, that she may not 
be troubled in obtaining it in such seasons, as may tend to her comfort." 

Gen. Sedgwick renews the latter request, — in relation to his pay, — to Cromwell's secre- 
tary, Thurloe, in letters dated November 7, and November 12, 1665 ; remarking, _" the truth 
is, my heart and spirit are in a confusion, and (I) think it may sometimes finish my few 
days 1 have here to be." His presentiment proved true. So far from granting his request 
to return, the Protector sent him a commission to conunand the army. " He never enjoyed 
himself," writes one of his ofiJcers, "after he received his commission," " but as was appar- 
ent to ail men, from that time lost much of freedom and cheerfulness." He died May 24. 
1656. 

Charlestown has cause to remember the public spirit of General Sedgwick. He took a 
warm interest in its welfare ; and either as selectman, representative, or a member of an 
inqjortant committee, was constantly in its service. He was an enterpri.sing merchant, as 
we find him buildmg wharves on the shore east of the old ferry-ways, carrying on a brew- 
ing establishment, building the old Tide Mills, and interested in the Iron Works at Lynn. 
He was zealous iu disciplining his company, — freely spending time and money, Johnson 
says, for this purpose. The train band manifested their feeUngs towards him by the gi-ant, 
somewhat irregularly, of a piece of land, which the town " to gratify the major," confirm- 
ed. His residence was in the market place, now the square, near the site of the Bunker 
Hill Bank. 

Robert Sedgwick was a representative of the liberal Puritans of early New-England. 
Religion was iu all his thoughts, and yet he openly opposed the prevailing intolerance. His 
regard for education is seen in his gifts to the College. He was "a very brave, zealous and 
pious man," "beloved and esteemed by all." Ayh^sbury, June 25, 1G56, in Thurloe, "Vol. 
IV., p. 604. "He was truly a religious man, and of the most innocent conversation I ever 
accompanied." [History of Chai-lestown, by Richard Erothingham, jun., Esq.] 

* Middlesex County Land Records, Vol. IV., page 2;i0, Jlay 20, lfi5T. By deed of this date,

Samuel Sedgwick, of London, England, was married to 
Elizabeth . 



I do not iind that he had or had not children : but have collected 
the following particulars relating to him. 

Mr. Samuel Sedgwick was in the city of London, in 1G57, as 
appears by the subscription of his name, as a witness to the will 
of Jonathan Wade, of Ipswich, Mass., which purports to have 
been executed in that city, on the 17th of June, 1657, and was 
proved before and approved by a Court of Probate held at Boston, 
July 8, 1(586, and is recorded on Suffolk County Probate Records, 
Vol. XL, p. 40. Next after said Record is an entry of the follow- 
ing deposition : 

"• The deposition of Elizabeth Sedgwick, aged 33 years, or 
thereabouts. This deponent testifieth and saith, that for the space 
of six years, wherein she was wife to Mr. Samuel Sedgwick, late 
of London, deceased, she well knew his hand writing, and was 
perfectly acquainted therewith, and that she hath well viewed and 
considered the subscription of the said Sedgwick's name as a wit- 
ness, and that she verily believes the same to have been done by 
himself, and no other. Taken upon oath, December 1, 1683, be- 
fore Peter Bulckley, assistant. 

Vol. III., page 332, of Middlesex County Land Records, is 
recorded an Indenture in writing, purporting to have been executed 
in the city of London, on the 20th of May, 1667, by Samuel 
Sedgwick, in which he describes himself as " citizen and cloath- 
worker, of London, sonne & heire of Robert Sedgwick, late of 
Charlestowne in New-England, in the pai'ts beyond the Seas, 
Esq' deceased," and by which he conveys to " Francis Willoughby,

*T)ie settlement of the town of Litchfield, the Indian name of whicli -was Bantam, was 
pommencej in the year 1720. During tlie frequent wars between England ;ind France, the 
Canadians and Indians often liarassed our borders ; and Litchfield, being a frontier town, 
was exposed to tlieir ravages. 

•■In the month of August, 1721, Mr. .loseph Ilarris (one of the first settlers of Litch- 
field, from Middletown) a respectable inhabitant, was at work in the fields alone, and being 
:itfackod by a party of Indians, attempted to make his escape. The Indians pursued him ; 
and finding that they could not overtake him, they shot him dead and scalped him. As 
Mr. Harris did not return, the inhabitants win-(! alarmed, and some scarcli was made for 
him ; but tlie darkne.'!S of the nigiit cliecked their exertions. The next morning they found 
his body, and gave it a decent burial. Mr. Ilarris was killed near the north end of the 
Plain where the road turns to Milton, a little east of a school-house now .standing; and for 
a long time after, this Plain was called Hanis" J'lain." The place of his interment remain- 
ed unmarked for more than a century, but rested in the memory of the older inhabitants.

KEY. HEJN[]{Y SMITH. 



FIRST GENERATION. 

Rev. henry SMITH, first settled minister of Wetbersfield, 
Conn., is supposed, from the tenor of his will, to have been twice 
married. Of his first wife nothing is known ; of his second wife, 
her Christian name only, which was Dorathy. After his death, 
she was married to Mr. John Russell, of Wethersfield, father of 
Rev. John Russell, jun., successor of her first husband, in the min- 
istry at Wethersfield, and afterwards first minister of Hadley, Mass. 
She was his second wife. Mr. John Russell died May 8, 1680, 
aged 83.* 

Rev. Henxy Smith died in 1648. 

Mrs. Dorathy Smith, alias Russell, died at Hadley, in 1694.

VI. Joanna, bom December 25, 1641. 
VII. Noah, born February 25, 1644. 
VIII. Enzabeth,born August 26, 1648. 

*Mr. John Russell i-emoved from Wethersfield to Hadley, with his son Rev. John Russell 
and his other children, in 1659. 

■\ The births of the four youngest children of Rev. Mr. Smith are recorded in Wetherstield 
Records. In hisivillMr. Smith mentions son Peregrine, deceased, and twomarrioil daufihters, 
who had children : these daughters must, of course, have been older than those rocoivled. 
By the will of Mrs. Smith, alias Russell, there was a daughter Dorathy ; she was older than 
those born in Wethersfield, and younger than the two elder daughters. Thus there is 
proof that there had been at least eight children. From these premises, it may confidently 
be inferred, that the two married daughters were by a first and different wife, and that 
Dorathy was by a second wife. As Noah and Elizabeth are not mentioned in the will of 
their mother, it is to be concluded they died young.

Obadiah Spencer, of Hartford, Comi., was married to Mary 
Disborough, daughter of NielioL-is Disborough,* one of the first

" *In the year 1683, the house of Nicholas Disborough, at Hartford, Tvas very stransely 
molested by stones, by pieces of eartSi, by cobs of Indian corn, and such other things, from 
an invisible hniul, thrown at him. sometimes thro' the door, sometimes thro" the window, 
sometimes down the chimney, and sometimes from the floor of the room, (tho* Tcry close.) 
over his bead ; and sometimes he met with them in the shop, the yard, the barn, and in 
the field. 

" There was no Tiolence in the motion of the things thus thrown by tho invisible hnml : 
and tho' others besides the man, happenM sometimes to be hit, they were never hurt by 
them; only the inan himself once had pain given to his arm, and once blood fetch'd from 
his leg, by these annoyances, and a fire in an nnivnown way kindled, coiisiim'd no little part 
of his estate. 

" This trouble began upo)i a controversie between Disborough and another person, about 
a chest of cloaths which the man apprehended to be unrighteously detained by Desboroitgh : 
and it endured for diver.'i months : but upon the restoring of the cloaths thus detained, the 
trouble ceas'd. 

" At Briixlitling, in Sussex, in England, there happened a tragedy not unlike to this in the 
vear 1659. 'Tis recorded by Clarlc in the second volume of his Ernm/ihs." f^fatbcr's

abeth Allen.* Ilis wife survived him and was married to (^eoro-e 
Gardiner of Salem, Mass., merehant. [Mr. Gardiner appears to 
have been of Hartford in 1673.] 

Mr. Samuel Stone, the Reverend Teacher of the Church of 
Christ at Hartford, died Julv 20, IGGS.f 



*0n Boston 1st Church Records, p. 25, date of July 1641. " liCttei-.s of commendation were 
granted to John AVmthrop the \-ounger, going to Enghmd, the like for our bro. Mr \\'illiam 
Uibbins also going to England. 

" Mr* Elizabeth Stone, lately called Mrs Eliza Allen, but now the wife of M' Samuel Stone 
the teacher of the church of "Hartford, in Conn., was granted letters of recommendation 
thither." 

Turning back to 24 March. 103S-9, I find the admissions were Mr; Elizabeth Allen, Mr- 
Penelope Pelham and Elizabeth Story. Whether Elizabeth Allen were maiden or ividow is 
not known to me, but my opinion is that not being called wife of any or widow, .she was a 
joung woman, for she lived to 1081. [Judge Savage.] 

t The last IVill and Testcment of the Reverend M' Sam' Stone, late teacher of the church

WILLIAM WHITING. 



WILLIAM WHITING, one of the early settlers of Hartford, 
is mentioned in the histories of this eountry as early as 1632 or 3. 
Between 1631 and 1633, " The Bristol men had sold their interesf 
in Piscataqua, to the Lords Say and Brooke, George Wyllys and 
William Whiting, who continued Thomas Wiggin their agent, &c." 
Mr. Whiting retained his interest in Piseataqua till his death. 

He was "one of the most resj)ectable of the settlers in 1G36" — 
" one of the civil and religious Fathers of Connecticut," a man of 
wealth and education, styled in the records "William AV^iiting, 
Gentleman." In 1642 he was chosen one of the Magistrates; 
1641, Treasurer of the Colony, which office he retained till his 
death. In 1646 "a plot was laid by Sequasson, Sachem of the 
Naticks, to kill Governors Hayncs and Hopkins and IMr. Whiting, 
on account of the just and faithful protection which these gentle- 
men had afforded to Uncas. The plot was made known by a 
friendly Indian and the danger averted." 

He bore the title of Major in 1 647. 

William Whiting died July, 1647.* 

[His widow, Susannah, married, 1650, Mr. Samuel Fitch, of 
Hartford, by whom she had two sons. Mr. Fitch died 1659, and 
she married 3. jNIr. Alexander Bryan, of Milford. She tlied at 
Middletown, at the house of her daughter, Mrs. Collins, and was 
buried there July 8, 1673.]
